What will we be reading: TBD – I am asking educators what their number one top mathematics or EdTech priority is right now. If you have a book you have been dying to read, let me know in the comments. The most popular topic will be our first book study and then we will have future books studies from there.

When will we meet: Meet weekly on Wednesdays @ 7:30 PM EST through Zoom. The start date is tentatively set for February 7th, 2024 but will depend on the interest generated around this post. The end date is also tentative depending on the book we choose.

How much will this cost: The only cost to you is the cost of the book. Everything else is free.

In Conclusion

How do I get involved: First respond to this post with the topic/book you would like to read. Then fill out this Google Form to express your interest. An email will be sent out later in January confirming our book and start date.

I can’t wait for the opportunity to meet and work with new educators. I am always excited to hear others stories and experiences in the classroom and I love learning from you! Please join me for this fun and exciting opportunity to network and grow your practices.
